MAC Cosmetics have another cracking collection coming up in October, by renowned designed Manish Arora. Arora is known for his use of vivid colour and I love the look of this bright and beautiful eye compact. I can’t wait to get my greedy little fingers on the collection.
So many lip balms don’t have an SPF. WHY? Lip balms are there to care for the delicate skin which surrounds the mouth, so the thought that they might not protect against sun damage amazes me.
Huurah for MAC, my all time favourite brand. Finally the ‘Tendertones‘ have been released. Tubs of glossy balm is sweet-shop hues which smell good enough to eat. And yes. They have SPF 12.
My favourite, which has a permanent home in my handbag, is ‘pucker’, a light and fruity pink. The colour is subtle, the result is silky shine and the tender loving care is a winner.
Blusher is great, isn’t it? It illuminates a drab complexion and makes it look healthy and rosy, can define bone structure or soften an angular face. Blusher makes me happy.
What makes me unhappy is that my favourite blushers are no longer available; these would be the Pout Flush Blush and MAC’s Beauty Powder Blush.
As you may or may not know, Pout went bust before Christmas. Luckily for me, not without a massive extravaganza of a sale in which I dutifully participated. They still have a few products left at HQHair.com, so grab your credit card and have one last spend (while you still can!).
As for MAC, I was sent the powder in ‘Sweetness’; a vibrant pink which looks surprisingly natural when worn. I was desperate to buy the peach shade ‘Joyous’, not just because it has my name in the title but peach shades suit blondes more than pink. I left it too long though and now it’s gone. The horror of it all!
So now I’m on the look out for a new blusher. I’m interested, what are your favourite brands for making your cheeks rouged?
My skin. It’s a funny old, finicky thing. I went through my teens pretty much blemish free, with a bit of dryness when I hit 16 which drove me mad, then *BAM* I get to my twenties and it’s zit city on my chin. Spot and acne products drive me round the bend – always meant for oily skin. But my face isn’t oily, oh no, it is still dry.
I was recently sent though a face cream from MAC Cosmetics – my favourite make-up brand – from their new Moisturelush range. I tend not to associate MAC with skincare and was dubious; would this destroy my love of MAC?
At first, i wasn’t enthralled by the gunk – it feels and smells a bit too much like emulsion paint. I really wasn’t looking forward to slathering it on my scared skin. Using only a very small, teeny tiny amount, I rubbed it between my hands and gently patted it into my face.
Surprisingly the cream sunk in pretty well and hasn’t made me break out, well, no more than usual anyway! I’m still a bit scared of the ultra-thick texture, but as an occasional night cream and emergency heavy moisturiser it will most certainly do the trick.
I think MAC would have been better to bring this out in winter not spring, but as the weather is still pretty harsh I’m not too fussed. Well done MAC, oh how we love you!
